Our highway system puts large tractor-trailers on the same high speed roads as regular passenger vehicles. There are bound to be accidents. With millions of trucks on the highways there are thousands of serious injuries and deaths every year from trucking accidents.
Most truck drivers are professionals who adhere to the rules for proper sleep, truck maintenance, and they follow the rules of the road. There are, however, still a lot of truck accidents that are caused by fatigue, poor truck maintenance, and bad driving such as following too closely or speeding.
Trucks are huge and have therefore they have a massive amount of force built up when they are traveling at highway speed. The cargo loaded onto trucks can become deadly projectiles in the event of an accident. Trucks routinely carry flammable, toxic, or otherwise dangerous cargo, which can turn any accident into the potential for a catastrophic loss.
If you or anyone you know has been in an accident with a tractor-trailer or any size commercial vehicle then please have them call me for a free consultation. I will fight to make sure that they recover the maximum amount on their claim for personal injury, pain and suffering, lost wages, and potential future medical treatments.
